New Biden Ad Pushes His Iraq Plan

In a new 30-second campaign spot, which began broadcasting in Iowa today, Biden (D-Del.) describes a trip home from Iraq aboard a C-130 military flight that was also bringing home a flag-draped coffin. "All I could think of was the parents waiting at the other end," he said. "We must end this war, in a way that doesn't require us to send their grandchild back."

The ad was played during today's Democratic debate in Des Moines, and other Democrats took issue with its contention that only Biden has a plan to get U.S. troops out of Iraq and keep them out. However, several candidates backed the basics of his withdrawal plan.
